Grandma's Recipes One By One!

Egg Casserole

on December 16, 2016

Christmastime is the time for family get-togethers. My mom tells about all her cousins and aunts and uncles staying overnight at her grandparents farm at Christmastime, and that was a LOT of people – there were 8 siblings in Grandma’s family and then there would have been spouses and kids. This photo was of 3 generations (an aunt, an uncle, a grandparent, Grandma and Grandpa, and my mom and her brother) in front of the Christmas tree in 1950, when my mom was 10 years old – she’s the one in the checked dress.

They look like they’re all ready for church. I love their hats!

A breakfast dish like the one I’m sharing today would have been great for them with a lot of people staying overnight for the holiday. Because this is the time of year for family, family, family, and sometimes family stays overnight, that means you need a very quick and very easy dish for breakfast or brunch in the morning. A delicious Egg Casserole is the perfect dish for your overnight company. This is so easy and so good, and that’s what you want when there’s so much to do! How many times have I said that when making these recipes? Grandma sure knew what she was doing – make it easy and make it good!

This is another great recipe that you can make the night before!

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Egg Casserole

Butter a 9″ x 13″ pan.

Put in bottom of pan:

3 cups seasoned bread croutons

2 cups cheese, shredded (I used cheddar)

6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

1/2 cup onion, diced

Beat together:

10 eggs

1 can cream of mushroom soup

2 cups milk

1 stick margarine (I used butter), melted

salt and pepper

Pour over bread and cheese.

Refrigerate overnight.

Bake, covered, at 350 degrees for 1 hour (I forgot to make this the night before I needed it, so I made it 3 hours before baking it was great).

This has all the ingredients that make an egg bake so darn good.

Bread, cheese, bacon, eggs – how bad can that be?

The melted butter does solidify once you put it into the eggs, so it looks a little weird before it goes into the oven.

Add a piece of fruit and you have the perfect breakfast/brunch dish.

Oh man, this is so good! This egg dish is just what you need for the hoards of overnight holiday company that inevitably show up this time of year. It’s so easy,  you could even make more than one! It’s so delicious – your guests may never leave!
